Windsor (and Eaton) is an hour's train ride from Waterloo station, London

All swans are property of the Queen, unless she has given permission to keep a flock. The Eaton School is allowed to keep swans as swans were considered to be a delicacy for feasts.

We final get rained on. Most of the time it rained while we were indoors and stopped when we were outside!

The blue mail kiosk commemorates the first airmail letter in England which was flown from Windsor to another regional airport. Unfortunately, the plane crashed and the letter never made it, but the event is commemorated none-the-less.

This is a three mile road which goes from Windsor castle to Ascot race track. The road boarders what is now called the big gardens but was originally the royal nature preserve used for hunting and closed to the “public”
